Re: In search of water ... Moon and the Mars

US made phenomenal innovations in computer technology, pharmaceuticals/medicine, basic research in sciences like physics etc., but so did other nations.

But when it comes to real engineering and designe like automobiles (Germany and Japan), rocket engineering (Germany, USSR), Nuclear engineering (Oppenheimer, Einstein and other Germans), I wonder if US had anything original. One can say that all who innovated are americans, but lets not forget that US itself has tried these things during pre-war and mass migration of 60s without much success.
